1970 Warre

Post by AHB » 21:24 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Mature brick red, 60% opaque. Initially reticent on the nose but some time in the glass allowed it to open up a little and reveal gentle toffee and spiced cranberry with a touch of tobacco ash. Gentle and elegant on the palate with ripe fruit that is mature and elegantly spiced. Much softer and less robust than the Graham 1970 shown alongside - gentle, soft and elegant in a very pleasant manner. 92/100. Drunk 27-Sep-16. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
